If you do not throw yourself into the breakers, how will you ever meet the one who frolics in the waves? 

--Zen Saying


The Auckland Zen Centre is a Buddhist community supporting authentic Zen practice and training in Auckland City, New Zealand.







  Climate Emergency Discussion

All around the world, organisations and even whole countries are declaring a climate emergency. Should AZC declare a climate emergency too? What would our climate emergency declaration look like? What would it commit us to?

All Sangha are invited to come on Tuesday 28 May to discuss how we respond. There will be two rounds of sitting (7 - 8 p.m.) and then we'll get together over tea to talk.




                    Workshops are in a two-part format, and include:

  • detailed instructions on sitting and walking meditation
  • how to establish a daily practice at home
  • developing mindfulness in daily life.

After you have attended the two-part introductory workshop you are welcome at any of the sittings offered by the Centre. The next pair of workshops are 8 and 15 June 2019 (both Saturdays).
